This concert invites families to experience the full power of the Canton Symphony Orchestra at an affordable price and a sensible time of day for children. Spend your afternoon sharing music with the next generation of concertgoers, musicians, and composers. The program features shorter pieces and movements that are easy to enjoy. Included on the menu is Ravel’s “Mother Goose Suite,” featuring movements inspired by Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, and Beauty and the Beast. Also featured is Grieg’s “Peer Gynt Suite No. 1,” which brings the concert to a thunderous close with the famous “In the Hall of the Mountain King.” Performing with the CSO on the first half is the Canton Youth Symphony Advanced Orchestra, our premiere youth ensemble made up of students from six surrounding counties. All adult tickets to this concert are $15. Children, youth, and college students attend at no cost.
